Abstract

We present an analysis of a femtocellular communications network and the impact of cochannel interference on link performance. Furthermore, we propose a method whereby user terminals can maintain a controlonly connection to an adjacent femtocell for interference mitigation purposes. Specifically, we provide an emphasis on suboptimal but practical methods that rely on transmit beamforming. Our numerical results demonstrate that even simple multiantenna methods can be effectively used to suppress co-channel interference provided that control channel connection between interfering femto-base station and user terminal is allowed.
